I just think since technically they are in the middle of nowhere and everyone is camping the dance tent can go to at least 2 or 4. Who's going to complain?

When i went to Bonnaroo "Sasha and Digweed" went to sun up.

It'd be nice if they did that, but I don't know if they will. Last year I watched all of the acts headlining in the tent until the end and was still able to walk to the main stage and see a few songs get played by those headliners. It'd be really sweet if they went until 4am but knowing how the campground is, I'm sure you could find something going on until 4am.

Sorry to say it but I still don't believe that they named Rumpus Room after where the wild things are.

Or Cats as one person on the Sasquatch site suggested.

I just think they meant a basic Rumpus Room. Because that's the one everyone knows.

Who would realistically make the connection from one line from a kids book that had nothing to do with the actual creatures. It really makes no sense.

Or the Rumpus Cat..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rumpus_Cat

I think they just mean a Rumpus Room like the one every suburban douche bag has.

They would have been better off to keep the name comedy dance tent or maybe generic entertainment area.

It's silly to call it The Rumpus Room especially when it's a tent.

So it's the Rumpus room Tent.

I feel your pain Ardent, I think you should have won as well. It's funny how confident I was with my submission until you told me yours. Either way, based on last years dance talent, I don't think I have anything to worry about in regards to going to that tent.

Seriously? You thought that the fucking ewok stage would win? Even Star Wars fans hate ewoks. Why would you think that a suggestion (a) abhorrently obvious and (b) completely detestable would win?

Considering that in the email there's a line about "let the wild rumpus start!" which apparently mimics the exact wording on a page from Where The Wild Things Are, I think you're being a moron.

I can think the name sucks if I want.

I get the connection to the wild things.

i just think it sucks.

I'm just giving my complaints why I think it doesn't work.

Most people will think of a Rumpus Room not the Wild Things.

Even though they did use the line in the email, most people won't get it.

I'm just giving a thought process above of what most people's initial reaction will be when they see that name.

I know why they named it that because you guys told me.

Honestly I haven't read that book since I was really young and didn't remember that line.

Nor did I see the recent movie.

Trust me, the name sucks.

Ardentbiscuit

They already use Wookie, isn't that an owned property?

Plus isn't "Where the Wild things are" an intellectual property?

They're quoting a line from the book and they will probably have to have a picture on the tent so people will get it.

Monklish
12-05-2009, 10:20 AM
I'm pretty sure they don't really give a shit. I'm also pretty sure that less than 10 percent of America would ever identify a "rumpus room" the way that you are. Most people haven't even heard the term.

Ardentbiscuit
12-05-2009, 10:39 AM
I think more people know a regular Rumpus Room than a quote from where the wild things are.

But alas, you are right, they don't give a shit.

And I submitted one other...

Im not counting on this FNM at Sasquatch business... but if it does happen, I will definitely attend that day. I will probably be too poor to attend the others. Then again if this goes down...


Saturday: Iggy & The Stooges->Pearl Jam
Sunday: Faith No More -> Pearl Jam
Monday: Pavement -> Pixies

Then there is no doubt I will be in attendance all 3 days. No matter how poor I am.

but i'm pretty confident that FNM will be at many of the fests...that was what they were doing in Europe, among other shows...but fests were their main target. i can't see them passing up coach, sasquatch, lolla, roo, apw, acl, osl, etc...

They were already officially confirmed by Sasquatch elsewhere. That site is pretty useless.


Those Pavement reunion dates just keep on rolling in.

As things stand as of this minute, the first reunion show that the indie rock big dogs will play on American soil will be at the Sasquatch! Festival, which will come to the Gorge Amphitheatre in Quincy, Washington May 29-31, aka Memorial Day weekend.

At the moment, Pavement is the only band that the Sasquatch! organizers have announced; the full lineup is coming February 16. And no, we don't know which night they'll play. Maybe they'll headline all three!

I scratched my head at the name announcement. I didn't know what it meant before reading the last couple pages of this thread.

My submission, if anyone cares, was the Teen Wolf tent. He is a mythical beast, the movie was a comedy, and dude can dance (based on one of the closing scenes from the first flick). I do agree referring to it as the Teen Wolf Tent would be a bit odd though.

I have no problem with this. I do not like the way Pavement has gone about this reunion and the fact that they seem like they are going to play everywhere next year including every other festival is taking some of the specialness out of it. I think at this point Coachella would be better off to reunite another important band that would be a more left field choice like The Replacements, Talk Talk maybe even try for the cocteau twins again. I think that's maybe why we saw an offer out to Spacemen 3.

12-10-2009, 05:26 PM
I didn't know the discussion had to do with what they were being paid. I'll let you pretend to know what "top dollar" is and what they are getting paid to play at each gig. I don't even know what "both sides" you are talking about. I just don't see anything wrong with a reunion act touring the country. Otherwise it's not really a reunion but more of a one off or just a couple shows thing.

If you're going to reunite you are going to want everyone to know you are back and give everyone a chance to see you and pay you.

The issue isn't whether pavement should be there, but will they. Sure, a reunion that is not so rare can play coachella, but if speculation and rumors are true, there mght be an issue of pavement wanting a lot of money, more than some (gv?) want to pay for a non-exclusive reunion that everyone has known about for months. I think it is all pointless because I am sure they will be here. And imagine the backlash if they don't.

so let me get this straight, you don't want a highly acclaimed band to play Coachella because of over saturation? Are you out of your mind man, and this goes for everyone complaining they are playing everywhere. That just shows me you guys don't even care for the band. If you really loved the band you would take them in any form, who cares how exclusive it is. It's this reason Coachella gets shit every year when the lineup first comes out. People set their expections too high. Coachella isn't going to worry about your expectations. They will give you the best lineup pound for pound out of any festival in the U.S. and if that is for some reason not enough, then don't attend.

suprefan
12-10-2009, 06:00 PM
I think the biggest strength Coachella has is the undercard and Sahara acts, because there isnt another festival in the country (that isnt genre specific) that has such variety in that part of the acts they book. And 2008 is proof that everyone had slim pickings on headliners, so everyone looked the same, but when it got to the nitty gritty some festivals had amazing talent, while the top lines are all they had and used it to hide the lackluster support beneath it. so big whoop Pavement decided to go for the money, let them play everywhere, they still havent shown where they will play first in the u.s., and whats more special than the first show as it is? If its the polo fields, you wouldnt feel good about that?

sin213
12-10-2009, 06:06 PM

this is so true, although the only thing I would say is Lolla had a comparable lineup to Coachella in 2008. Also, not just because of Radiohead, NIN, and Rage, but I get what you are saying. In 08 The Verve, Portishead played, in 09 Paul MC, Leonard Cohen, MBV all played. That isn't mentioning the top to bottom lineup they offer. there is no down time at Coachella ever. There is always something to do.

suprefan
12-10-2009, 06:13 PM
Yep, when I even decided to go to Lolla in 08 and looked at the schedule there was a bit of downtime and that kind of sucks. also, stages being so far apart made it a bad idea to even try to catch half a set due to time lost in walking 10 - 15 mins.

well i like the replacements more, but i'm just using it as an example. Like I said IF GV can get another band (that's just as good or better than) pavement to reunite I rather them get that band because Pavement seems to be playing every festival this year.

one of the reasons why i go to coachella over other festivals is because of the fact that Coachella has those rare acts that you couldn't see anywhere else or in a festival setting thats what sets coachella apart from the rest.

The reason why I go to festivals is to see multiple acts that I truly want to see and to a lesser extent be exposed to bands that I wouldn't otherwise.

Sasquatch has claimed this Pavement show will be their first show on US soil. This coupled with the rumours that Pavement want more money than Goldenvoice are willing to give them makes me believe they wont be there.

Beyond that, what is Pavement isn't planning their North American tour until after Sasquatch? Maybe they believe the money GV is offering them just isn't enough to justify one show out in the desert, and then not playing anymore shows in NA until May/June, after Sasquatch.

At this point, I am really doubting Pavement will be at Coachella... but I wouldn't be surprised if they wound up on the poster.

Have any of you considered that perhaps Pavement wants Sasquatch to be their U.S. debut and not Coachella, and that money may not have anything to do with it? Malkmus lives in Portland, and Sasquatch is a Northwest festival with a completely different vibe than Coachella. Perhaps they think that their set will be better received at Sasquatch, and it probably will. Just a thought.

That makes sense, but I don't think Sasquatch is filled with same indie crowd it once was. Last year seemed like one gigantic party with live music. The entire time I was there all I could hear people talk about was how awesome Chromeo's dj set was gonna be or how awesome Girl Talk is gonna be. Maybe Pavement making this their U.S. debut would change that a little bit, but I don't really see it having that much of an impact.

Sasquatch has always been like that. It's super homegrown. People go every year regardless of who's playing. There is a pretty heavy college crowd and always has been. It was kinda founded on them, not the indie scene. I mean... The first year was Jack Johnson and Ben Harper et all...

Coachella just doesn't work with our school schedules. Also, the only Coachella set I really miss not having seen is Portishead, otherwise Coachella sounds awesome, but just not something I would sacrifice too much for. Like a trip to NYC and Chicago for instance, both of which are places that Erika has never been to.

Edit:

Yup, at $170

Not really -- it was $160 I think (normal was $100). Premier might have been worth it just to avoid getting parked waaaaaay over the hill, but otherwise there were no real amenities. 2 shower stalls in each of 2 locations which were working/open very little of the weekend, with long lines, running out of water for sinks such that you couldn't even brush your teeth.

Wild Horse was so much nicer and is much cheaper. Definitely the way to go if you don't mind taking the shuttle and don't mind being removed from the 24 hour party.

venturas90sgirl

Precisely, a crowd that is so open-minded and nonjudgmental that even Chromeo's awful set in the much-too-small and terribly designed dance-tent is met with eager anticipation (I blame all the Canadians.) But in all seriousness, Pavement fans will be out in force and whoever is on the main stage in the evening is guaranteed the rapt attention of at least half the people at the Gorge and everyone within earshot will soak that shit up like a sponge. It's Pavement for fuck's sake.

chiapet
01-04-2010, 06:25 PM
The excitement for Chromeo, I think was in part just due to the fact that there was a DANCE TENT AT ALL. :) That there's a dance tent -might- just get me to Sasquatch again. It's a nice change from 3 days otherwise spent listening to remarkably similar indie and alt rock.

chiapet, tell me more about Wildhorse camping. What you liked, what you didn't.

chiapet
01-04-2010, 11:03 PM
Wild Horse is a more structured than Sasquatch's camping, and they do enforce quiet at night. You're not going to be able to have music blasting while you cheer your friends on doing keg stands, whereas the sasquatch campgrounds could feel like a frat party. There were people up late talking, but reasonably quietly. So if you were looking to be able to play music all night and such, it's not the right place.

So with that established, what was good about Wild Horse: the aforementioned kitchen where they cook up good food at reasonable prices, you can even get dessert at night. Not only are you allowed in/outs with your vehicle but you can easily get back to your camping spot. So if you wanted to grab more beer or grab groceries, you can. Once you're in, you're pretty much stuck, at the sasquatch campgrounds. They have outdoor showers (walled off but open air) which were awesome -- and the lines were not as bad as at the sasquatch campgrounds. Because it was reasonably quiet, I got a really good night's sleep each night.

OH, and did I mention the grass? Holy fuck, their grass is the softest, densest most incredible grass I've ever touched. I wanted to strip down and roll around on it. It made for AWESOME sleeping. Super super soft under your tent.

Edited to add the people who run the place are really nice people, and as mentioned, there is a shuttle that takes you to/from the venue.

There is nothing I didn't like -- apparently some people missed the shuttle at the end of the night, which would really suck.

faxman75
01-05-2010, 07:11 AM
Yeah and don't get the wrong impression. It's not like they come around telling people to shut up, it's just quieter and in general people seemed more respectful. I remember the last night people were up a little later. I also remember it being rainy one or two of the nights so that limited how much people wanted to hang out outside their tents or cars. It's just a much smaller campground with more of an adult crowd. During the mornings before going in people were grilling, painting their VW Microbus, playing frisbee and had the radio going as well. So it's far from completely dead. Just a good "reasonable volume" as milton would say.

invisiblerobots

Fuck, now I'm regretting opting for Premier again this year. In 2008 Premier was super nice - set off in its own area on the right side of the entrance, with its own shower building that I never had to wait more than 15 minutes for. It was much more mellow than the mayhem of the main campground but we still had fun and also get some sleep. Last year Premier got moved over to the left and was pretty much the same as regular camp. The only real amenity I could perceive was the shuttle.
I might consider switching...

I totally forgot about that. That was pretty brilliant. I think I recall us speculating that, if we did Sasquatch again, we'd get a Premier camping ticket, load up a carload of people and drive into the campgrounds, get bracelets, then drive right out and camp at Wild Horse. $160/4 people maybe a good enough deal to not wait in line for hours. Heh.

TommyboyUNM
01-05-2010, 11:10 AM
Josh, we waited about 1 minute to get in. So 30-45 minutes seems like a long time to be standing there. That's almost an entire act.

rage patton
01-05-2010, 11:14 AM
In 08, my wait times were about 5-10 minutes the first two days... then 45 minutes on Monday. Then in 09, I only went Sunday and Monday. On Sunday I had no wait at all, and on Monday I waited about half an hour.

That 45 minute wait on Monday in 08 did cause me to miss Yeasayer though. However, at that time I didn't know a single Yeasayer song, so at that time it didn't really bug me at all. In retrospect...

But yes, a 1 minute wait is better than all of the above.

That would be a pretty light headlining roster, no? Especially since NIN played last year and easily could have headlined their own night if not for being attached at the hip with the Jane's tour. Weezer would be a travesty, and also wouldn't surprise me.

The dance tent headliner will likely be playing at the same time as the main stage headliner. If they expand the tent, which was always packed last year, they can get away with Weezer headlining a night, with a huge draw in the tent.

As a person who graduated HS in the mid 90s, I have hated PJ since they were first on the scene. Give me Soundgarden anyday. I can't wait to see them again, twice was not enough.

I know a person or two in Seattle as well but either way we can go grab some grub or check out Seattle Center or something touristy if you do happen to get in early.

This is going to be good stuff.

Did you just call me a novice music fan? Funny.

As a person who graduated HS in the mid 90s, I have hated PJ since they were first on the scene. Give me Soundgarden anyday. I can't wait to see them again, twice was not enough.

However, I do acknowledge the fact that PJ are good live and I don't forsee them being there bringing about a sh!tty crowd or anything. I just don't want to see Sasquatch's budget being spent on a major headliner that I could give two sh!ts about ;)

I don't know if you are a music novice. My point was that if you remove any preconceived notion about how much a band is going to suck or be great live, it makes it easier to judge the worth of a show. Any music novice would appreciate a Gogol Bordello show over a National show for example, yet some think the National are the greatest live show around, because they are super fans. Same point, any music novice would enjoy Pearl Jam live.

Your post also implied you hadn't seen Pearl Jam live, thus my response.

In order to avoid a pointless discussion, I'm going tomove beyond and just say that Eddie Vedder's voice has always annoyed me, I don't care for PJs songs (even when they were brand new) and PJ were the pussies of the grunge era and so were their fans.

Edit:

Essentially what I'm saying is that I would liken PJs attendance to that of KoLs last year.

I'm actually considering this instead of flying. My best friend lives in Vancouver and I'll probably visit her before the festival and maybe make a road trip to Seattle. I'm taking 11 days off from work around the festival so I'm thinking I'll just drive.

So, I'm not going to Coachella this year so Sasquatch is kind of the main event for me this year. In years past, a good majority of the Sasquatch lineup was spillover from that year's Coachella. After looking at the 2010 Coachella lineup, any guesses on which artists will be on both bills? Here, I'll start: I bet Pavement will play both shows.

faxman75
01-21-2010, 12:44 PM
I think Faith No More, MGMT, The Dead Weather and Phoenix might be possibilites.

bobert
01-21-2010, 12:51 PM
All good guesses. I'm definitely crossing my fingers for FNM and Phoenix. If MGMT plays Sasquatch there will be mass-hysteria the likes of which we've never seen. Two years ago I threw on some of their songs in the campground and I remember the girl next to us asking what band we were listening to. Last year you couldn't walk 10 feet in the campground without hearing that shit - guess all the Canadians caught on to that trend a year late. Also heard at least three different bands/djs do remixes of MGMT songs.

The coastal route on 101 is gorgeous Mark. Especially past San Francisco going through the redwoods all the way into Oregon. It's longer than shooting it straight on I-5 but waaaay less tedious. I'd take my friend with me to Sasquatch but she's not really a festival person but maybe I can convince her if the lineup is tempting enough.

As for Coach/Sas double bookings, we know Pavement for sure but I'm sure there will be a couple more. There always is.

OMG last year we heard Kids playing from every fucking direction in the campground. I went from loving the hell out of their album in 2008 to finding them to be ridiculous in 2009. I'm slowly easing my way back and will see what I think of their Coachella set.

Holly, 11 days off and a road trip up the coast to see a music fest and a friend sounds like a whole lot of fun. I would love to start at Coachella and just drive around the country for about 6 months hitting as many music festivals as I can and visiting friends.

This argument took place in the pumpkins thread a while back. Every band pushes their latest album and sprinkles in parts of the rest of the catalog. You are being way too picky and unrealistic. I would argue Billy played less new material than most bands that have been around as long. Go see tours by Sonic Youth for example.

18 of the 25 songs on that set list were from 2000 or earlier. That leaves 7 songs that were newer mixed in among the classics and that's still too much? That's a ridiculous complaint.

Yea, every band promotes the new material. What would be the point of releasing an album then playing a 90 mintue to 2 hour show and only playing 3 songs from the new album? Nobody does that. This is mostly about Billy being an asshole and ruining what used to be a fantastic band. I was a huge Pumpkins fan until they broke up the first time. I never purchased Zeitgeist or saw them on that tour but if they are part of a festival i'll certainly check them out and most likely enjoy all the classics.

Tool only played three songs off of 10,000 days when they headlined Coachella. Granted those three songs probably lasted 25 minutes, but I get what you're saying.

Because, outside of the few remaining hardcore fans, no one gives a shit about a Billy Pumpkins album. This is the same for a lot of bands, damn good bands even. I'm not going to U2 to hear 'get on your boots', I'm going to hear Achtung Baby and Joshua Tree material. REM are in the same predicament to name just one other band.

Hmm I don't remember this being a complaint from Pumpkins fans. Their gripe has been pretty consistent. Billy is a bitch and the new stuff sucks. I didn't see the new pumpkins so I'm not sure if what you are saying is wrong, it's just not the common gripe. Lets test it out with a youtube if Billy hasn't blocked them all.

Alrght, I give up. I started with Cherub Rock. 1994 in Barcelona. I have not found a single version from 2008 that matches this so lets just enjoy what used to be a fantastic band. :)

Your argument has to be the weakest of anyone's in this thread. How would you know his motives for making the music he makes now? What musicians do you know that aren't in it for the money? You've turned this into your opinion of Billy's feelings and you don't have a clue what the guys is thinking. If he was in it just for the money I'm sure you would have seen Pumpkins music all over commercials and movies the past 15 years. Lets stick to the music discussion and your opinions about the music rather than play guess what Billy's motives are.

My opinion is that his new music sucks in comparison to his older stuff and I share that opinion with an overwhelming amount of former SP fans including everyone in this thread. We actually did all agree on that as you pointed out yourself.


No one is arguing with you. Not one person in this thread has defended Zeigesit the only new Pumpkins album.

4 hours from Seattle?

I driven to the Gorge 3 times, my average time from where I live is about 5 hours. I once made it in 4.5 hours. I love about a half hour north of Bellingham. We once stopped in Seattle to pick up something, and from Seattle to the Gorge, it took us just over 2.5 hours. How is it taking you 4 hours?

Oh. I've been to the Gorge like 10 times, too. Oops. It sure feels like 5-6 hours, I'll tell ya that much.

Carry on...

pumpkins has the same issue metallica does....its nice they give their old stuff some play time, but when they play their old songs, they BUTCHER the songs beyond belief. lowering keys, slowing tempos, dumb segues and poorly executed bridges, etc...

I had to register just to say that WHY? and Local Natives will 100% for sure be there. I've spoken to the members of Local Natives in person after a show, and they said they would be playing, but to keep it on the down-low because "they just found out" (this was back in December).

My radio station did an interview with WHY? and we asked them if they were coming to Washington anytime soon and they said "we may be coming to Washington in the spring for a certain festival."

Around 11 minutes in this clip is when they say they will be playing a "certain festival": http://kzuu.podomatic.com/player/web/2010-01-26T19_12_30-08_00

So I am thinking about going to this for the first time this year. I especially want to go if Pavement, Neon Indian, Why?, and Edward Sharpe end up playing, but I don't know if this has been asked and don't want to search through the thread, but it says camping is $100. Is that for your whole group or per person?
